ABOUT JENNIFER

Jennifer Tervit McDonald began her career in Admin, then after 7 years decided that she wanted more from a job, something to challenge her more. So she decided to go to University to complete a BA (hons) in Business Studies and Marketing.

This was not an easy feat as she was a single parent and was still working to support her family. Just before her final year began, she set up her own social enterprise business called Singled Up. This was a website for single parents to help them get back into work, education or starting their own business.

Jen ran this business for 3 and a half years, then an opening came up and she went to work for Business Gateway Clackmannanshire as a Marketing/Business Advisor and for Ceteris (Scotland) Ltd as a Marketing Executive for over 2 years.

Then an opportunity arose in May 2016 to start up her own marketing consultancy business and Perfect Penny Marketing was born. The thinking behind this business is that it would be affordable to small businesses and it would be understandable and engaging for the business owners using the services.
